Energy efficiency regulations continue to push the boundaries requiring continuous improvements. This means the industry needs to introduce advanced materials at the right cost both for cold/hot applications.
In particular a global appliance manufacturer approached BlueThink with this problem, seeking an affordable solution to increase their products energy rating.
Based our experience in we carried out a Technology Scouting activity to find possible solutions, including disruptive and incremental options.
Although an interesting span of solutions was proposed, an innovative material coming from the automotive industry offered an important performance improvement, as well as a cost reduction.
Through our expertise in simulation, prototyping, design for manufacturing and testing, we were able to offer a validated solution with a clear path to industrialization.
This project offered the client the opportunity to improve their product energy efficiency rate considerably without affecting the BOM cost.
